Video shows Capitol Police Department officer getting crushed by rioters
A new video from the events that were unwinding on Wednesday on Capitol Hill shows a disturbing moment of a bloodied police officer screaming for help while being crushed by the wave of rioters inside the U.S. Capitol.
The officer shown in the footage has been identified as a young officer of the Capitol Police Department but his name has not been released yet. He can be seen pinned between the metal door and the crowd of the protestors slamming their way through.
The blood can be seen running down from his mouth while he is screaming, “Help!”
The clip shows the police then use pepper spray at the crowd. The crowd then bands together to push back against the officers’ riot shields while screaming, “Heave ho!”
